Later from Texas. — By the arrival yesterday
afternoon of the steamship Galveston, Capt. Wright, we have received dates
from Galveston up to the 22d inst. inclusive.
Speaking of the march of the “Army of
Occupation” from Corpus Christi, and the order that no one but those
attached to the service should move with it, the Civilian says.
We understand that the order forbidding
persons from accompanying the army has been pretty rigidly enforced, some
persons who had violated it by following its march with whiskey to sell to
the soldiers having been arrested and sent back in ions, and the barrels
containing their liquor broken open and their contents destroyed.
The news from Austin, the seat of
Government, is to the 11th inst. The proceedings of the Texas
Legislature so far are not fo general interest.
The Telegraph states that the corn planted
this season, in many of the fields in the vicinity of Richmond on the
Brazos, is already several inches high. We hope that some of our
Northeren friends, while breaking roads through the snow drifts, will
think and ponder upon this.
The papers generally are barren of news of
the least interest.
